Another vote for the 75-150. Cracking lens. Had one before but sold it on. Picked one up on E Bay this evening for just 16.

Dammit Dave, I was trying to pick one of those up last week; set my snipe at 30 quid but was outbid twice (i.e. you got a bargain)!

I thought so; typically they seem to go for around 30.

My vote for the Pentax A 70-210 f4 macro and M 100mm f4 macro and the f 35 -70mm cheap as chips if you can find them in good nick,in fact some one was selling a 70-210 in the classified not long ago and at i think @ 50.00 it did not sell that was a bargain.

Paid 25 for my 75-150mm f4, it turned out to be near mint aside from the usual dust. Really doesn't feel as though it had much use, and I find myself using it when I'm worried about lenses which would be harder to replace being damaged. This and the M 135mm f3.5 have near-constant availability, something which can't be said for my K 120mm/135mm/200mm set!

Has anyone any experience of the Vivitar zooms with matched multipliers? I think it was a 75-150mm (ish) but I haven't really studied them too closely as I already have far too many short telephotos.

I have changed my mind about an M 100mm f2.8 anyway. I want the K 105mm instead...

Grab this Sigma 75-200mm f3.8 AF. Heavy and solid but pin sharp. I've had one for a while now - some samples are here

Fetched decent money. I might dust mine down
